. >> i believe we ought to make the tax cuts for the middle class permanent. >> we have now got both parties essentially telling a big lie, with a capital "b" and a capital "l," to the public. >> cut taxes. >> cutting taxes. >> make the tax cuts permanent. >> the republican party, as much as it pains me to say this, should be ashamed of themselves. >> this from ronald reagan's old budget director, architect of the largest tax cut in american history? >> it's rank demagoguery. we should call it for what it is. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm morley safer. in this edition, we look at two of the topics dominating the american economic landscape: jobs and taxes. first, we meet with president obama's so-called jobs czar. then we visit a struggling town in the heartland. and finally, we take a look at a controversial income tax initiative in washington state. in the first decade of the 21st century, big american firms cut around 3 million jobs in the u.s., while adding almost as many overseas. no company went global more aggressively than general electric, the conglomerate that makes
a guy pretending to be mitt romney stood on a stage next to me. what $5 trillion tax cut? i don't know anything about a $5 trillion tax cut. >> we are going to win this. we're taking back the white house. >> the romney family is taking back this campaign. >> or not. >> that was kind of strange. trying to stick words in people's mouths. >> stay in your seats. there's just four weeks until election day. >> the top rate, for instance, would go from 35% to 28%. >> don't pay any attention to that tax cut behind the curtain. >> i'm not sure exactly precisely with what i said but i stand behind it, whatever it was. >> we begin exactly 28 days until the election with both the president and his challenger declaring they will win a race that is anything but settled. today their paths will cross again in ohio, the state that may yet decide this election. amid new signs of urgency from both campaigns. case in point, this afternoon's gallup poll showing the president leading mitt romney 49% to 46% among registered voters. among likely voters it's romney up by two leading the president 49% to 47%. f
of comfort with voters. the obama campaign guns in. plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns. they take a baseball bat in beat romney's brains in in the six or seven swing states. that is why his numbers were upside down. why they did that i do not know. i have been asking that question since june. it was a huge miscalculation. the romney campaign family intervention try to introduce him -- this is what they should have done back in may or june. >> mrs. romney and the oldest son of mitt romney went to the father and said to have to change things. >> for a long time, the family had wanted to take the charlie cook approach. chris wallace alluded to the fact that their big bet from the beginning was that all you had to be was not obama. that turned out to be wrong. we can see in the different channels that they are doing now. you have to be yourself in addition to not being obama. >> let me explain. a lot of you do not know who stuart stevens is. he is a republican strategist from mississippi. he was a hollywood writer. he used to write "northern exposure." he has written a coup
his own tax plan, making them stick to what they've been the last six or seven months. >> this is where i think paul ryan will have pressure on him and where i expect paul ryan to perform very well. i mean, i found obama's debate performance totally lacking in specifics. we still don't know what his tax plan is or his deficit plan or his budget plan. but paul ryan has become the personification for the democrats of all that is callous and cold and evil about the romney campaign. so ryan now has i think an opportunity to not only explain his plan more importantly romney's plan, but to explain it in a way that is compassionate and human. and i expect he'll do a very good job of that. >> there's a tricky thing that ryan has to do. and i think you suggested it there, carly. there's clearly a distinction between the ryan plan. actually, there have been multiple ryan plans on multiple fronts. >> that's right. >> and the romney plan. so ryan can't get lured into a debate over the specifics. >> i agree with you. >> here's the problem, mitt romney embraced that budget plan. >>
. they keep misquoting him. but let me tell you about the mitt romney i know. don't raise taxes on small businesses because they are our job creators. >> vice-president biden. >> incredible. >> look, you both saw benjamin netanyahu hold up that picture of a bomb with the red line i. thank heavens we have the sanctions in place. it is in spite of their opposition. they have given 20 waivers to this sanction. all i have to point to are the results. they're four years closer toward a nuclear weapon. when we see -- look... did they come in and inherit a tough situation, absolutely. but we are going in the wrong direction. slower than last year and last year was slower than the year before. job growth was slower than in august and august was slower than it was in july. >> sean: that was a review of the vice-president's unhinged behavior last night. disturbing as that was, when it came to substance, the results were even worse. we will have a complete fact check in the next segment. but i would be remiss if i didn't include the biggest lie at the top of the program. it involves the administrat
that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but really, mitt romney officially thinks that he did. they have done this over and over and over and over again, on big issues like health reform, on small issues like whether he met a guy or not. and it is a ridiculous technique. i mean, think about what this means for the long run. i mean, the romney campaign is training the country to not believe this guy when he is talking. they're training the country to feel that, you know, wherever you hear mitt romney saying something today, don't worry, it doesn't really matter. it is all subject to revision later. long-term, this is a weird technique. it has been a strange political technique from the get-go this year. but mostly, it has worked for them. them correcting
. >> you can do that by cutting taxes? >> those are your words, not mine. >> thank you very much, sir. >> that was kind of strange. trying to stuff words in people's mouths? >> it sounds like you're -- >> ryan folks putting the paper in front of the camera and everything. vice presidential nominee paul ryan getting annoyed in this interview with terry camp in flint, michigan. the campaign even after the interview was over still went out of their way to trash the reporter that paul ryan walked out of that interview on. the campaign giving on the record quotes calling the reporter an embarrassment. the city where that reporter works and where that interview took place does have the worst violent crime rate in the nation. god bless flint, michigan. so that line of questioning here for mr. ryan was understandable. maybe even predictable. but beyond the newsworthiness of paul ryan getting up and taking off his microphone and ending the interview and beyond the newsworthiness of the campaign going after this reporter, there was what that reporter was able to elicit from paul ryan. there's h
trillion in cut and tax cut for millionaire and billionaires. >> the obama camp has been using a study by princeton economist harvey rosen to back up that romney's plan is paid for by tax cut on middle class but there was pushback from rosen saying he was misrepresented, saying increase in the tax burden on lower and middle income individuals is not required in order to make the overall plan revenue neutral. >> he would be the first to say this is not a monument to one man. >> under backdrop in california today, the president held an official event designating the chavez national monument that may help rally hispanic voters. new politico, george washington university battleground tracking poll of likely voters shows president may have an intensity problem. only 73% support him say they are extremely likely to vote compared to 86% who back romney. >> they know the race has tightened. >> bret: ed henry traveling with the president in california. ed thanks. >>> we are less than a month away from election day. much of the country is already taking part in early voting. we are taking our we
of their ideas on their tax cut plan. things the president did not do against governor romney. you'll see after, coming out next tuesday, you know, whether the president's taken this to heart. i think you've got two strategies. one is to counter all the things that the obama campaign thinks were lies, you know, coming out of romney. and also to sort of lay out a road map of what the president has done, and what he intends to do in a second term. >> aimee, as the president does study for tuesday, are there any clear openings that paul ryan left for him to exploit when he faces mitt romney? >> i think what you're going to see is he's going to ask for specifics on tuesday night. he's going to push him on the tax plan. he's also going to push the famous 47% line. you know, democrats really were upset that he didn't use that line of attack before. vice president biden sort of opened the door for him to do that on tuesday. i think you're going to see more a more aggressive obama take that stance a little more. >> but the fact that the president didn't go after him during the debate on the 47% and the
cuts, medicare reform, taxes, are going to be major issues tonight when the candidates who have been debating those very questions in separate stump speeches, now they get to do in person face-to-face. joining me now, pennsylvania senator pat toomey, served on last year's super committee to try to tackle the deficit and of course has been a budget hawk throughout your tenure in the house and now the senate. thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> great to have you here. what should paul ryan say when joe biden goes after him on how devastating, these are biden's words, devastating the budget cuts would on discretionary domestic spending if he sticks to the defense entitlement and tax postures that he's outlined? >> well, a few things, andrea. one is the simple fact that over the ten-year budget window of the ryan budget, spending on average grows yfr year. it grows by 3% a year. so most americans -- >> not every category. >> true. but most people think that a government that's at a record size as a percentage of compete, the government that has doubled in spending in the las
. >> when talking about sesame street and not taxes, you know, foreign policy or, you know, what to do about the fiscal cliff, what kind of a campaign is that? >> well, this is -- so the gamut here, you mentioned, this is on cable tv nationally in some broadcast tv nationally and not in any swing state. if the obama campaign spent $100,000 on this ad buy, i would be surprised. they certainly don't have any real money behind it. this is meant to be a talker in the media and to send to their base and say see, mitt romney, he's being ridiculous. the danger when you do things like this, this close to an election is to your point, i got lots of republicans sending me the famous barack obama quote from 2008 about john mccain that he can't talk about big things in this election so he's trying to make it about small things. i don't think barack obama is trying to make this election about big bird. this seems a targeted strategy at a small group of people. at the same time it certainly opens them up to the, you know, look, we have serious problems in this country, barack obama has said that many time
of reducing tax marginal tax rates and increasing revenues and the cost it might add to the deficit is criticized as being non-specific. how do they respond to that? >> governor romney has laid out a framework. any time you have a plan such as this, you don't want to put all the details out there because there are negotiations that need to take place. the framework has been looked up by six different independent organizations including those from harvard and princeton. to say this plan will work. so the details don't need to be out there right now. the framework is very clear about what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do to strengthen our middle-class. >> gregg: i might say that the tax policy center which is cited by the obama campaign it's going to cost five trillion has been said by the director of the to be completely untrue. let me move on. the president has added two new things to his campaign speeches. he tells his audiences he says romney wants to kill big bird but more credibly he points to the unemployment rate that drops below 8%. it shows the economy under his leadersh
trillion tax cut. that's not my plan." mitchell: "the nonpartisan tax policy center concluded that mitt romney's tax plan would cost $4.8 trillion over 10 years." vo: why won't romney level with us about his tax plan, which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he'd have to raise taxes on the middle class - or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here... w could we ever trust him here? then you may be looking for help in choosing the right plan for your needs. so don't wait. call now. whever your health coverage needs, unitedhealthcare can help you find the right plan. open enrollment to choose your medicare coverage begins october 15th and ends december 7th. so now is the best time to review your options and enroll in a plan. medicare has two main parts, parts a and b, to help cover a lot of your expenses, like hospital care... and doctor visits. but they still won't cover all of your costs. now's the time to learn about unitedhealthcare plans that may be right for you. are you looking for something nice and easy? like a single plan t
on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that experience did not get comfortable enough on that stage? >> he was commonplace and that's what people wanted an obviously was rehearsed in taste. if he did put in that romney did on monday at the foreign policy institute, which was to take libya and pivot to a broader critiques of foreign policy, just as biden pivoted because it's a weakness getting out of iraq and afghanistan. >> biden seemed prepared to come back with the issue of funding for the security. they knew he was going to get attacked on security and had his answer right away, which was he wanted us, you cut the team. it was a good job of him expecting. in terms of this clip, we saw both sides anticipating this discussion. they both have a question was going to come. it came first
talking about taxes. was it a fact or fiction. take a listen. >> middle class will pay less and people making a million dollars or more about begin to contribute slightly more. >> that one is an interesting one because he used the million-dollar mark. well, that's moving the goal post. the president, under the tax plan. >> considerably. >> here is the fact. president obama has been promoting for years the threshold for a tax hike would be considerably lower, individuals making $200,000, not a million. >> right. >> 200,000. households making 250,000. >> was it just, you know, he he just said something off the cuff like that and didn't know it? that's a considerable shift in policy if that's indicates. >> considerable. absolutely. that's not moving the goal post. that's just moving it so far you can't even see it you are right. does that mean behind the scenes they are talking about that number? that's the question. >> hoping. because 200,000ness cities like new york, in cities like los angeles are certainly not struggling but that is far from being wealthy. they walked that aback a litt
estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. under this president there have been 43 months. under one president alone. he does not understand what it takes to create a real recovery. i do. >> reporter: bill you mentioned the pew poll. the pew poll governor romney was seen as guy with new ideas. he was the one people trust to create jobs. bill: one of the lingering numbers in the debate governor romney's honesty to cut federal spending. >> taking on big bird. bill: how is the obama team, responding that, going after it? >> governor romney was trying to make a point cutting unnecessary spending said. i like pbs i like big bird. i even like you, jim lehrer, but i
, talk about taxes, talk about regulations, talk about getting people back to work. i think and i don't know but just judging by his record over the past ten years, i think he sees abortion as a sort of maddening distraction from what he considers to be his main agenda, which is work and jobs. >> do you -- okay. do you really think he thinks that, that it's something that -- you don't think he has a gut feeling about it, a belief? >> i don't think he has a core conviction about what the federal government should do with abortion. again, you look at how much he's gone back and forth. again, there are a lot of republicans, there are a lot of conservative republicans, mike, who -- what? >> i believe it's an impractical issue for anybody trying to run for president as a republican. i'm asking what you think he believes. >> that's what i'm telling you. all you have to do is see how many times he's changed on abortion to know this isn't at his he core. you can look at his record and know what is at his core. lower taxes, lower regulations, being pro-business, getting people back to work, be
taxes, those things don't create jobs, they cost jobs. >> so question about the numbers, do you care when the number comes out, 7.8%, did you talk about it with your neighbors? do you care? and many pundits say no, that's not how people vote. when they go to the polls they vote their feelings, you know, they know if their neighbor lost their job and know if gas prices are currently through the roof or know if they put can't put food on the table and gas prices skyrocketing. january 20th of 2009 to today, out in california we're getting word upwards of $6 a gallon for gasoline and gas stations running out and people lined up trying to get gasoline out there. and this is not good news. >> and governor huckabee said that those are the things that obviously mean so much more to voters and whether or not the actual unemployment number fluctuates. >> they're looking at gas prices. when they squeeze that handle on the pump, they know they're paying nearly 4 and 5 bucks a gallon and when they get the paycheck they know it's less than it used to be they know that food prices are up and costs
romney tax cut, on the, on their budget plan, on entitlement reform. giving every suggestion that might be how he is tonight. jon: paul ryan has mastered the nation's budget on capitol hill. a member of budget committee and so forth. he is no slouch when it comes to debating facts and figures. >> there is a difference between a congressional debate and a committee hearing and being on the national stage. this will be his first time in a debate on the national stage in this kind of a venue. so he is, he is the underdog but, as you say a very bright guy. i think one thing is, when we get into foreign affairs tonight we might see paul ryan doing really, really well in an area he is not expect to do well. jon: in my humble opinion nobody takes apart poll numbers better than you do. you have interesting conclusions from some of these poll numbers that are out since the first debate. 53% of the americans are still saying the economy is in trouble and president obama hasn't done much to fix it. >> yeah, look. president obama's weakness people look what he has done the last four years and two o
, what end of tax credits do you want paul ryan and more important mitt romney and what about medicare? what does your plan really amount to? i think the vice president needs to be specific. he needs to focus and he will and he needs to remember that nobody votes based on the vice presidential candidates themselves. joe biden's target tonight in the end is not really paul ryan, it's mitt romney and it's the mitt romney that the president didn't successfully attack last week. >> and, howard, to that point, has romney in some ways made paul ryan's job more difficult, not only by laying out a tax plan that fundamentally doesn't add up but also with his comments this week about abortion, first coming out saying there was no legislation that he was aware of that he would support banning abortion or curtailing abortion and then coming back and saying, i will be a pro life president and i want to defund planned parenthood? has he laid out a difficult challenge for paul ryan himself? >> i think he's laid out a difficult challenge for paul ryan on abortion, for sure. that's an issue that the de
